Art of the Real


Two lives cross in New York. Lamis, a Lebanese woman, has just moved to the city and describes her impressions while the Brazilian man Wilson has already lived there for 10 years. We never see them on the screen, but their relationship is described in poetic Arabic and Portuguese voice-overs.

Our take

We are proud to collaborate again with Film at Lincoln Center’s showcase of nonfiction filmmaking, Art of the Real. Our first film directly from the festival is a richly evocative, cross-cultural story of a relationship told in the epistolary spirit of Chris Marker and Chantal Akerman.
